Fat Loss & "What Can I Do For (Insert Section) To Show":
Hate to break it to you.
No matter how many crunches you do for your abs that never poke through. No matter how many hip adductions/abductions you do for "the side of my butt". No matter how many triceps extensions with the rope or overhead dumbbell extensions you do with a 5-lb dumbbell to get rid of your "chicken wing arms". No matter bodyweight hip thrusts you do off the bench while checking Instagram and Facebook. vintage inspire wedding items for plus figure ladies...
You cannot work a certain area and spot reduce.
Fat loss is a total-body phenomena.
While you can "spot-enhance" (Nick Tumminello) (ie: bodybuilding and working a certain muscle with more load and stress for it to grow), fat loss happens kind of how it happens.
For a woman, you tend* (*meaning on average, most, but not all seem) to lose fat from top to bottom.
For a man, you tend* (*meaning on average, most, but not all seem) to lose fat from the extremities (neck/arms/legs)
The key here is consistency because even when you're doing all the right things, sometimes fat loss halts...and you just have to remain consistent to break through the plateau.
What ultimately matters is:
-Nutrition (setting calorie intake then protein intake then fat/carbs)
-Strength training (doing all you can to hold on to lean body mass since lean mass is metabolic tissue and the more lean mass you retain and/or build, the less body fat you tend to have.
-Adherence (setting up a plan and training program you that works with your schedule and life. This may mean only working out Saturday and Sunday and kicking butt with nutrition more than ever)
Set yourself up for the win and execute.
